The fact is that we were 9-8 last year and with many people predicting far more than 9 wins in this thread, its perfectly reasonable for one person to predict less, based on a much less proven coach. Ironically, I am also the only one who would also trade Payton within the division for three 1st round picks, because I guess I feel someone worth three 1st round picks could be worth 2 wins in the record, whereas others think he is worth 8 1st rounders within the division but at the same time expect we will win more games without him.
I always predict an undefeated record. Every year.

But, I get where you're coming from.

Re: Predict the Saints' Record This Year

10 or 11 wins.

A lot of change in one season. Middle of the schedule is rough.

Re: Predict the Saints' Record This Year

I am bullish on this season for obvious reasons.

My one and only main concern going into 2022 (aside from health) is the volume of changes in a single offseason.

New Head coach
New assistant coaches
2 new starting safeties
2 new starting WRs (not even mentioning MT)
New LT

Look, I think every move is at least lateral if not upgrade but the communication alone will be challenging.

Those first four games I feel like we should come out 4-1 could just as easily turn into 1-4 if we're not sharp.

I'm probably wrong....

Something to consider is the status of our key competitor in the division, Tampa Bay.

New Head Coach
Three additional new coaches
Loss of key starters S Justin Whitehead, RG Alex Cappa, LG Ali Marpet
Week 15 ACL injury to Chris Godwin

As for the Saints communication, the defense stays pretty much intact other than the two major additions at safety and both are veterans and should be able to pick up the defense, especially given a full off-season of activities for the first time in three years.

Re: Predict the Saints' Record This Year

12 -5

Like 76 eluded to earlier, that stretch of games (starting with the Bengals) in mid-October & into November will be challenging.
